KidsAcoustic: Baroque Dance w/ Jamia Hansen-Murray
Some kinds of music are inherently age-inclusive. KidsAcoustic presents real music that parents can enjoy for its own sake, while the lively tunes and wonderful instruments draw kids in naturally.
For each concert, teacher and early string performer Shulamit Kleinerman joins forces with a duo partner from a folk or early music tradition. A personable forty-five minute program is followed by a hands-on opportunity for all the kids to try out our menagerie of instruments.
Joining Shula this month is not a duo musician but a dancer! Jamia Hansen-Murray turns Empty Sea into an eighteenth century ballroom, performing sprightly dances in a sumptuous period costume she made herself. Jamia is a regular performer with Seattle Early Dance, a seamstress to be reckoned with, and a woman of astonishing energy and good cheer. What is a gavotte, a minuet, or a bourre anyway? Young music students will love finding out, and everyone (including the littlest ones) will be captivated by the fancy footwork and furbelows. Try on some baroque hats and costumes for boys and girls at the end. (Hint: Bring your camera!)
We'll have mostly floor seating for this show, to clear some room for Jamia.
